Reflections by Ethel Porter Bailey
One of my favorite gifts that I received over the holidays was a calendar titled “The Reading Woman”. It delivers what the title promises, which is, naturally, paintings of women reading. One of the paintings featured is this wonderful piece by Ethel Porter Bailey, Reflections:
There is something about the look in the the woman’s eye that I love and identify with; the dreamy, captivating, and yes, reflective place that a good book can take you to. To me, this painting just radiates a sense of comfort and contentment–the sort that can only be found in a book.
